These elections provide special access for blind voters, including data collection and voting facilities at their residences, familiarization with special materials, accessible polling stations, and accessible voting equipment. The 2019 Surabaya City Election in Sukomanunggal District was not inclusive due to structural obstacles such as not verifying data on persons with disabilities, not providing outreach to every residence, and not using special outreach materials for disabilities. The research method used was field study, collecting data through in-depth interviews and documentation. The theoretical perspective of inclusive elections was used to analyze the results, revealing that the 2019 Surabaya City Election in Sukomanunggal District was not inclusive. Cultural barriers arose due to the lack of voting facilities for blind voters, leading to despair and a belief that their participation will not have any impact on the election. Additionally, their families did not allow them to attend the polling stations.</p> Mezaluna Indy Permatasari Copyright (c) 2023 Mezaluna Indy Permatasari https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 2023-10-31 2023-10-31 9 2 81 91 10.20473/jpi.v9i2.50762 An Analysis of Indonesia’s National Food Estate Programme from a Food Sovereignty-based Perspective https://e-journal.unair.ac.id/POLINDO/article/view/44430 <p>This study examines the food estate “strategic national programme” implemented by the Indonesian national government in two regions: Humbang Hasundutan Regency in North Sumatra and Gunung Mas Regency in Central Kalimantan. Using a qualitative research method by examining previous research work on the concept of food sovereignty and food security, and by studying mass media coverage regarding the national food estate programme, this study aims to scrutinise Indonesia’s national food estate programme through a critical lens based on the ideas of food sovereignty as expounded in the 2007 Declaration of Nyéléni and examines whether the national food estate programme was designed and executed in line with the principles of food sovereignty as outlined in the Declaration. This study finds that the Indonesian government did not take into consideration the principles and practices of food sovereignty as outlined in the Declaration of Nyéléni, instead primarily relying on a conventional use of the food security approach in the execution of the national food estate programme in Humbang Hasundutan and Gunung Mas regencies, with significant consequences such as environmental degradation, economic impacts, and sociocultural and political disruptions felt by local producers and indigenous communities in regions affected by the national food estate programme.</p> Jonathan Siborutorop Copyright (c) 2023 Jonathan Siborutorop https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 2023-10-31 2023-10-31 9 2 92 102 10.20473/jpi.v9i2.44430 Is Political Science a Science? https://e-journal.unair.ac.id/POLINDO/article/view/45224 <p>In this literature review, we aim to answer the question, is political science a science? through revisiting the work of Gabriel Almond and Stephen Genco, titled <em>Clouds, clocks, and the study of politics (1977). </em>We will show the paradigm shift in understanding the subject matter of social sciences in terms of epistemology, ontology, and methodology, from the positivist clock-like model to the plastic model of the post- behavioralist schools, relying on the three-stage metamorphosis of Popper’s metaphor of clouds and clocks. Then, we will show how our definition of science has transformed from methodology-focused iron-like rigidity of positivists to the substance-based pursuit of understanding plastic reality. The review fundamentally links the change in the perception of social science as a science to the transformation of our understanding of science as a whole, after the emergence of quantum mechanics and the uncertainty principle of Heisenberg. The end result of this critical review reveals that political science is a science because science itself is not only about regularities and strict laws of classical mechanics, but it is about malleable realities. Therefore, although the subject matter of hard science differs from that of political science, political science could develop on parallel with hard science.</p> Nouha Khelfa Sayed Mustafa Zamani Copyright (c) 2023 Nouha Khelfa, Mustafa https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 2023-10-31 2023-10-31 9 2 103 117 10.20473/jpi.v9i2.45224 Relasi Insan Pers dan Politik: Studi tentang Kandidasi Margiono pada Pemilihan Bupati Tulungagung Tahun 2018 https://e-journal.unair.ac.id/POLINDO/article/view/51099 <p>The press and politics have different patterns of relations, and involve certain actors in them.
